to the specifics. watch for the senators from red states up for re-election and the pressure is greatest on them. they are away two weeks now from washington, back home, and there will be pressure on them. they will hear from their constituents about what to do from this. if you don't have much support, if any, among republicans, you need those democrats to get it through. >> hey, mark, give me a sense of harry reid's role in this. he wants to keep that title senate majority leader. navigating through these ice floes of this. >> it's already on the side of those who would like to see a large package, including a pretty big risk background check provision. it's not clear to me what more opponents can be to put pressure on senator reid. senator reid has a long history with the nra. they did not support him in his re-election race and i think he is looking for a path that not only protects his own views on gun control and not only tries to accommodate the white house but try to protect the majority. i think he is very stensive not just on guns but a range of issues too. all of these democrats are u
, the economy is waiting to be unlocked. enthey went on to say that's why we desperately need to you elect at least 17 democrats. 17 democrats in the house would give them the majority come 2014. >> yeah. look, it is a very, very ambitious goal. i believe the last time that the president has won that number of house seats in a six-year election, a mid, six year midterm was 1822. he has got his work cut out for him. i would suggest joe biden remember, house republicans were elected to do a job too. and they're doing, for their constituents exactly what they said they would do in the last election. so it is not as if republicans would bend to the president's will simply because he won an election. bill: that point is that the focus is on the debt. which one might argue would not be there unless you had house republicans pushing for that or at least holding the line. one final point, you say biden has given the game up here. what does that mean? >> yeah, look, i just think if there were a real charm offensive, if they actually wanted to find a deal, what would you not see is the vice presiden
in a big election which is what we are looking at here. these two you will notice are not quarreling over ideas. they are -- it's not their positions on the issues vary widely. these are a position about whether karl rove should be applying his strategic knowledge to the campaign or whether that job should fall to somebody else. and in the end it doesn't really matter because the strategy and tactics of the upcoming campaign, which is still years away will be decided upon by the candidate and that candidate's team. so, you know, this is just sort of after action skirmishing i think. it may last a while. >> bill: isn't there a purity issue in the republican party now where sarah palin and some other very committed serves -- conservatives think that karl rove isn't pure enough to be a republican. he is a kel out. a watered down guy, the rhino thing. republican in name only. isn't that still in play? >> yeah, and that's been a feature of republican party politics for as long as i can remember. there was always this segment of the party for whom no one is conservative enough. there was a -- l
buckley against the layout challenge to the federal election came a knock brought to the supreme court by senator james buckley with ralph winter, bob bork's friend from law school. the federal election campaign act set contribution and expenditure limits for federal offices and i'll submit the federal election commission independent of the president. according to the press to take politics out of politics but for possibly shift the balance of political control as congress in the coming end away from the president challenges. solicitor general bork some of his s.w.a.t team for cases. reran dolphin went to work on a brief in my stand is one of history's curiosities. the brief filed, and i quote, for the attorney general and the united state goes to great lengths to explain why speech and money are interchangeable come away surely would the first amendment is to set a limit on how much "the new york times" could charge him either further serious problems for the contribution and expenditure limit statute. next time somebody tells you a contribution or expenditure limit for an election is
you call an organization that has over 900 elected mayors from around the country a front organization. it's a group of people that -- lou: what do you call it? >> it's the group that dealt with gun violence, but it's, you know, when you get something like 95 #% of the american people supporting bkdz checks, 85% of gun owners support it, 80% of the nra members support it, but congress has reluctance because of the nra. it shows the will of the people -- lou: do you really believe they are so afraid of the nra, or do you believe that they have some conscious towards their con stitch wents and want to represent the values and desires of the constituents? i mean, are you really writing off all those people in the senate and the house of representatives and saying they are nothing more than cowardly fools at the service of the nra rather than voting their conscious? >> i would not call them "cowardly fools," but i have ran for office and been elected for office, and it's not an issue that they know the background of or cares about, that a lot of times they look at the intensity of the oppo
for re-election in those kinds of states. so we're seeing some of this debate shifting to the states. i mean, because of this difficulty of getting these federal laws, some states have already started passing their own. colorado's governor signed the law there yesterday. we saw the very sweeping law in new york, although already they've had to back off a little bit on magazines because the problem is they didn't actually manufacture the kind of magazines they were talking about. having said that, rana, could this be where this debate is shifting? joe biden's somewhat optimistic belief notwithstanding. >> i think so. i think new york is going to get attention no matter what because of mayor bloomberg being involved in this issue. again, i hope he continues strongly down this path because i think he has the power to sort of look across both sides of the aisle and really bring some unity here. i think it's interesting that some of these western states are actually moving ahead and passing laws. i think that goes to the point that we have this idea that, you know, particularly in the west a
that parachutes into communities four months before an election. while that is how we operated years and years, and done well as compared to ourselves. in comparison to the other side, the obama campaign lived in these communities for years. the relationships were deep. they were authentic. >> he is absolutely right. >> yeah. priebus announced 10 million dollar plan funded by the rnc that would focus on establishing permanent footholds in african-american and asian communities. they would begin their campaign sooner. >> a great idea too. he was talking about a june or july convention. >> right. >> less debates. >> less debates. >> i think it's great. >> for the next presidential election cycle which makes a lot of sense. maybe seven or eight of them instead of 23. to stop the party from cannibalizing itself later on. it's sort of looking like rebranding. >> what is wrong? you don't like that idea? >> i think it will be hard to enforce. >> why is that? >> a lot of media organizations that want to do debates and the party can't stop those organizations from offering to do debates and candidates
days, three days before the election and scare the with its out of everybody. and a lot of these politicians know that. and there's a lot of fear of that. and a lot of concern about that. the truth is not going to come out. that's not what the letter's going to say when it hits. and the campaign they're going to run will say, they want to take away their guns, they want registration so the federal government can come in and take your guns away. that's what the debate will be. >> governor dean, as someone that had a strong rating from the nra, i want to point to some of the reaction comes from senators who are probably going to have a hard time on the vote on this bill. mark pryor says in a statement, with i don't take gun advice from the mayor of new york city. i listen to arkansans. there's a little bit more room in the statement from senator mary landrieu. senator landrieu has a great deal of respect for mayor bloomberg on a great deal issues, but the senator will be listening closely to her constituents on this issue. you hear that and look at the poll, it is overwhel
minister. once elected, the first job will -- first prime minister. once elected, the first job will be to select a cabinet. fighting is still intensifying in and around serious capital -- syria's capital. there has been selling in a suburb. they have identified 100 -- shelling in a suburb. they have identified a number of areas where -- one person dies every minute as a result of armed violence. that is the stark message being sent by arms-control campaigners as world leaders meet in new york to try to robo -- to regulate global weapons sales. they have failed to reach an agreement to limit illegal trade. many say this business is out of control. >> across the world, 8 million new guns and other small arms are produced every single year. the arms trade is a massive global business, and much of it is conducted secretly and illegally. nations are trying to agree on a treaty that would, for the first time ever, regulate arms exports. >> it will mean that he responsible, legal, but irresponsible -- that legal -- it will mean that responsible, legal, but responsible trade will becom
sense. why are we giving them f-16s and tanks for this country whose elect hed president is associated with a terrorist organization and publicly called jews blood suckers and the descendants of apes and pigs injuries the president will be going to israel neck week and it is important that the american people give him a message rather than he give the israelis a message. that message is this. mr. president, americans stand with israel because it is a mirror image of our own freedom and democracy. and before you demand the israelis to give up land, ask the palestinians to give up terrorism. meantime, tell the israelis to build as much as they can and tell the palestinians that if they don't like this they can recognize the right of the israelis to exist safely and securely within their god it given biblical boundaries. that is probably never going to happen so i say pour the concrete, build the houses and let israel be strong. [ applause ] >> mike: a new, washington post abc news poll shows the president's approval rating at 50%. a 5% drop since the beginning of the second term just two
of the big clouds of july, that the presidential elections here in the u.s. has been lifted. and i think the u.s. will come with a very constructive position, having had time now, as requested, to study the document and make proposals to strengthen it. the challenge will be we're having a negotiation between 193 states who have raised different interests with regards to the arms trade and i think trying to find compromises that still produce a strong treaty will be where the challenge will be. it could be possible, there could be an agreement but could be a question of will that treaty make a difference? that will be a crucial element to discuss and consider during these two weeks. >> what about ongoing conflicts like the war in syria, for instance, whether or not the rebels should be armed? how do these conflicts play into those talks in new york? >> i think that's going to be a very interesting question. in the past a lot of civil society campaigners have pointed out the role played by russia, china and iran because they're supplying the government force there is and hoping the arms tr
much about in the election last year, paul ryan keeps the savings that obamacare would generate, but eliminates the benefits. the revenues that come from some of the taxes on medical devices and other things, they keep the revenue that comes from the affordable care act, but they want to cut the benefits. so thouis is really about an ideology. the wealthiest americans have essentially captured the republican caucus. and what we see in the ryan budgity or in anything that has to do with the affordable care act, anything that has to do with the smart investments that we know we need to get the economy growing again, those are off the table. big tax cuts for the wealthiest americans that has to be made up by somebody and we know who that somebody is. >> thank you for coming in. there is no huge surprise that the ryan budget overwhelmingly passed in the house or that it failed in in the senate, but three senators voting against it, rand paul, ted cruz, mike lee. that's a new thing, tea partiers saying i'm even more conservative than paul ryan. is that the message? >> yeah. that is t
finishing first last night in a special election, advancing to a runoff in two weeks in his bid to win a house seat. he picked up 37% of the vote, well short of the 50% needed to avoid a runoff. sanford calling his victory humbling. >> the voters care about is not my personal journey, what they care about is what am i going to do if elected to watch out for their pocketbook and their wallet. >> sanford was forced to step down as governor after lying about an extramarital affair. if sanford wins next month's special election, he'll face off against democrat elizabeth colbert-bu colbert-bush. >> people love a comeback story, don't they? >> he says he is going to support his sister. >> all right. one more story to tell you about, folks. the man whose 911 call may have prevented a campus massacre at the university of central florida speaking out saying how it all went down. police say suspect james cumaran pulled the fire arm at the ufc dorm when his roommate came out to investigate the suspect. allegedly pointed an assault rifle right at him. here's what he told anderson cooper. >> i was
as a democrat in their home state of south carolina. this was the first actual election you actually got involved in? >> yeah, yeah, this is the first one. >> reporter: i don't think anyone would begrudge you -- >> for my sister. >> reporter: trying to help your sister. >> exactly. she's my sister, and i'm willing to, you know, break the jewel of my own creation to try to do something for her. like, i'm not worried what it would do to me or my show to try to help her as myself, not as my character, and to help her as myself. you know, if people think that's not the right thing for me to do, i don't care. it's my sister and i'm willing to help her. >> reporter: you think she'd be a good public servant? >> i've met these people. and my sister, she's in the top decile. >> reporter: if she wins tomorrow's primary, her republican opponent could very well be former governor marc sanford who resigned amid scandal in 2009. >> the bottom line is this. i've been unfaithful to my wife. >> reporter: mark sanford is favored. >> the former governor of the appalachian trail. >> reporter: yes, is favore
and he didn't. and the bottom line is -- >> you won in the elections. >> i had to win in 2009 and christie and bob mcdonald, blue states and purple states, we laid down a 50-state plan. >> bill: as a former party chair of the state of california what do you people remember whether you won or lost. that's what counts. not if you happen to have a little deficit, and in fact michael steele went on to say when we were handing out checks i don't believe reince priebus complaining. >> so reince is just being silly. and i understand he wasn't complaining about debt and concerned about debt when i was write checks to wisconsin when he was chairman and he wanted to win the legislature and governor which they did and they were all on board about going into debt to win. >> when did republicans turn into democrats. it's all overshadowed and sabotaged by infighting. >> bill: this is the circular firing squad for which republicans are famous. grace nap ol 'tano will be with here today, neil king, and of course you'll be with us too throughout the morning, and mike i w
democratic senators who voted against the budget plan, all of whom are up for re-election and one, frank lautenberg from new jersey, he didn't vote at all. meanwhile, politico reporting senator tim johnson from south dakota not planning to run again in 2014. that puts yet another democratic seat in play. another notable democratic senator planning to step down, michigan's carl levin. yesterday on her facebook page, former governor jennifer granholm announced not to run for his seat. >>> and the president is on his way home right now. president obama spent four days in the middle east meeting with israeli, palestinian and jordanian leaders. his last stop to jordan's ancient city of petra, known to some as one of the seven wonders of the world. known to others as home to indiana jones' excellent adventures. >>> president obama and his team are enroute, home from the middle east. but they left one member of their party behind. secretary of state john kerry. martin fletcher is live for must tel aviv with more. martin, good to see you, sir. who is kerry planning on meeting with? >> reporter:
. >> now that he's been elected it seems like the obvious choice. i think one of the big reasons was the age factor because so many of the cardinals have been saying ahead of time we need a younger man. extreme youth in this world is considered like 63. so he's 76 and he just, he wasn't on the radar but he was such a prominent player in the last conclave, you'd think he would be a natural. but you know, people overlook that. there was also the accepted wisdom that can come in second, it's bad form to then be elected. it's sort of in a way it's something of a slight on your predecessor. but really the resignation of benedict may have changed that whole way of thinking. if he can resign, well then such taboos are now over. >> rose: you said an interesting thing which you said which was the idea of first of all was he a man of faith, and secondly, was he a man who could govern. governorring seemed to be an important quality here. >> definitely. there's a real sense that things have to be straightened out. there was a great feeling of drift under benedict. his mind was focused on wr
grant starting when he was agenda and help to getting elected president twice. nast loved being close to the white house but he also had a true and tender affection for grant as a man, and they occasionally entertain one another. so president grant sometimes came to morristown but one example was after grant's world tour, when he ended his presidency, was not a great time in his life, he went on a world tour in a foreign was super excited. he gets home and comes to them in morristown and nast says, sal wants to know what he wants. and grant says, if he knew what they had served me all around the world, all i want is corn beef and cabbage. that's what the server to the president of the next eight. that's what he wanted. evidently he was very satisfied. so that's a lot of people that you didn't come to hear about, but so what. i would say that his wide circle of friends which this is a tiny sample helps to demonstrate the way that 19th century networks operated. humorous the writer to editor to politician activist to preacher. and on from there. the way in which nast stood at the center
said, it's the president's first trip to israel and the palestinian territories since he was elected and the first time that he and prime minister netanyahu will meet since he was elected in the last few months. so it's really the symbolism. the white house called this a broad strategic conversation during which they will discuss iran, syria, the israeli/palestinian peace process. on those first two issues, they really are seeking some clarity over what to do if various scenarios arise. on the peace process, the white house has said from the get-go they're not coming here with any grand plan, any great new ideas and, frankly, there is not a lot of optimism among the three parties, the u.s., israel and the palestinians, that peace negotiators will be back at the table any time soon. >> alex, there have been reports and only reports of chemical weapons in syria. president obama has said that that is his red line. is this conflict overshadowing the visit? >> reporter: we have to be very careful when we talk about chemical weapons. when the white house talks about chemical weapons and re
resigning wants to lead his party's election in this may's election. musharraf himself admits that the homecoming is quite, to quote him, "risky" he says. >>> secretary of state john kerry making one more stop on his first trip overseas. an announced visit to iraq. he landed in iraq a short time ago. nick payton walsh has been traveling with the secretary and joins us via phone. what else is john kerry pressing for? >> yes, christi. on top of the agenda here, it is going to be a direct approach from john kerry to prime minister maliki. intervene on flights from iraq to syria delivering fighters to assist the regime. the u.s. is convinced that almost 80 flights and they want to be clear that iraq should, if it wants to have a role in forming the future of syria with the syrian opposition, they should prevent the evidence, they say. they say that inspections done by iraqis aren't enough and those have turned up humanitarian aid but the u.s. is convinced that those flights are carrying weapon supplies. a real trip here for secretary of state. >> all right. nick payton walsh, than
from easter recess. >>> well, some things only happen every four years. forget presidential elections, the olympics, leap years and this weekend, the senate did something it had not done in more than 1400 days, passed a budget. the all night session stretched from friday into the early hours of saturdays as senators dealt with amendments all over the place ranging from the keystone pipeline to eliminating tax breaks for fish tackle box manufacturers. no joke. it's true. passed a budget by a margin of one vote. >> now, the average budget resolution considered 78 amendments, we've done 101. average 35 amendments, we've done 70. twice as many. doing this has been a herculean feat. >> i know everyone is exhausted, and you may not feel it at the moment, but this is one of the senate's finest days in recent years and i commend everyone who's participated in this extraordinary debate. >> can't figure out if mr. in cane is awake. not a single republican supported the plan and four democrats each up for re-election next year also voted against their party's budget. the plan cuts $1.85 trillion
side, who got elected with 90% plus of african american vote, and what we see happening in inner cities around the country with gun violence, you know, there's a lot of work that we have to do in our mritpolitical systems, but one of the key things is really deal with money in politics. the overwhelming reach that these lobby groups like the nra can have in drowning out the voice of every day people. >> cenk: yeah, i think you are right. the assault weapons and high capacity magazines, they dropped those already. diane i want to go back back to wayne lapierre. let's watch this together. >> the whole thing universal checks is a dishonest premise. there is not a bill on the hill that provides a universal check. the shooters in tucson and arrow, newtown, they are not going to be checked. they are unrecognizable. diane how do you respond to that? >> well, it -- the logic doesn't make sense. if you follow that through, criminals don't respond to any law, okay. so if we are going to follow that through we wouldn't have passed any laws. we need to put obstacles in th
. >> sean: a political point. no, but he's doing things-- >> pursuing an election, and it's very worrisome and hurting americans. >> sean: 2014? >> 2014, hey, folks, that's what -- i don't care what he does when you're looking at him now when the poll ratings are going down. that's his objective. he gambled that he could change the muslim world and the fact is, we have tolerated -- i remember when the members of this administration, members of congress saying the muslim brotherhood they're not bad. they are poison and we're seeing that in egypt and it's a-- you know, you have to make a tough stand. >> sean: liz, you know, when he you say that the israelis are the descendents of pigs and apes, 9/11 truther, this is not hard to figure out and predict. the media got it wrong, the president got it wrong and a few of us here got it right. you being one of them, i was one of them. i don't know where you were. >> it's worse than what pat is saying. i don't think that this president is watching the united states decline for political gain. i think he doesn't mind if the united states declines. i t
knows what is happening in jordan and you have a new israel government elected not to make peace or more but simply deal with the orthodox in the israel society. this is the most unripe situation for diplomacy any american president has walked into. >> mike, this american president, i think, has bent over backwards to be an honest broker between the israelis and palestinians and he did so in a way that actually angered the israelis. so hamas launches rockets into israel while the president is there and what do they do? they actually push away a guy that, again, is trying to be an honest broker. >> yeah, he has tried to be an honest broker and paid a price to it to some extent in domestic politics. what do you think of the theory, it's more than a theory, i would guess, that this trip is based largely less on policy than the president's personality, convincing the israelis and the israeli government that i am your friend. the united states is your friend. we are not going to falter or hesitate or anything when it comes to the defense of israel. >> i don't think he is aiming so much to the
in elections, put out a press release blasting her, saying she would rather be in washington as a right wing celebrity than solving problems back in minnesota for minnesota's middle class. remember, she got a scare back in november. her election, her congressional election was closer than she expected and democrats are hoping to beat her this time. >> we certainly appreciate the response. it doesn't seem to back up the claim, though, that this health care will literally kill women, children and senior citizens. a lot of the things she's claiming right now about the government will be able to select who gets care or not, you could say about insurance companies right now, choosing who gets coverage or not. >> that's a great point. it doesn't back that up. she and other republicans, you know, have argued for years they believe obama care will ultimately mean people will lose their insurance and their health will be in danger. of course, she took that to a whole other level by saying that they would literally be killed, which you're right, she doesn't address in the statement. >> appreciate it.
have a poll in the last two weeks from quinnipiac university which shows that 47%/43%. on election day in the network exit poll 49%/46%. >> hilary rosen -- >> it's clearly moved but the idea the american people are, you know, universally for same sex marriage is just not backed up. >> one of the things you look at, hilary, the youth vote. those who supported that poll, 81% under 30 support marriage equality. where are we as the supreme court takes this up? >> well, and another interesting part about the youth vote, unlike a lot of other issues that ralph works on, the evangelical yaut, according to alex lundry, mitt romney's data analyst, over 60% of evangelical youth support gay marriage. this has taken over the tide. i think the supreme court as good citizens as they are, are really going to decide this case based on what's fair and right based on the constitution, which is, is there a rational reason to treat two sets of loving couples differently under the law? >> david brooks, the country is divided. there are 41 states that either ban it or treat gay marriage as something differe
. and we also have a new independent elections commission and we are looking at jordan as a model that is evolutionary and essential and peaceful and ensures openness, tolerance, moderation and unity. and equally as important, the level playing field. this will ensure safeguards of civil liberties and political rights and obviously encourage political participation. today, we're looking forward to our prime minister form forming his government in the next couple of weeks, based on his consultations with parliament, which is an extension of the same consultation process that led to his designation and receiving the highest number of nominations. so i'm very proud of the progress so far. the hard work is definitely ahead of us and this is the moment we're saying is the third way in the middle east. what we are saying that the arab spring is behind us and we're looking at the arab summer for us all which means we all have to roll up our sleeves, it's going to be a bumpy and difficult road, but i'm very encouraged by the process and very excited about the future. so again, mr. preside
party and this involved a case of the members of the black panther party on election day, standing outside of the polling station, armed with batons and yelling racial epithets at the passersby. it was on the video and the internet and the cost of a victory until they decided to stop the prosecution and there were hearings about this and perez was asked at one of these hearings whether or not it was a decision made by a political appointee at justice. he said no. it turns out subsequent e-mails shows in fact political employees at justice were consulted on this and i hope the senators at his confirmation hearings ask him about this. >> paul: we should point out the justice department make accessible, the spokesman as well as the city of st. paul and they've all declined, dan. >> well, i hope the senators bring this up. he is nominated to secretary of labor which has enforcement authority over the entire american workplace, pensions, minimum wage, and compliance. and if mr. perez goes into that job and uses these statistically based theories against the workplace, then we will have
to change is if we as citizens start to hold every elected officials accountable for the kind of laws that we put in place and we send a message to them that if you're going to vote with a nominal interest instead of the kids' interest we are not going to vote for you the next time around. [applause] that means we all have to figure out who are the school board members, state legislators and what steps they are taking on education reform. >> why do seem teachers receive the same rate every year? you touched upon it briefly earlier and is it the motivating for the excellent teachers come in and doesn't show poor performing teachers that they don't have to improve their own performance or regardless and it gets the same 2% raise every year regardless of what they do to the great future and the really hard work? >> again, you see why i was shocked when i was trying to make common sense changes and it got such pushback because you have some employees that are doing well and he should be little to compensate those employees even more. that depends on how the education system works. in educ

story that is completely missed during that election and there is no reason we should have been the only ones to see it. mike >> good afternoon. not so long ago i had a knee replacement which some of you will know something about that promised me that it would be a full recovery after a year. what better i don't have to wait two years. so, it is also likely to be out of the cold and the wind of new york city for a while. i woke up this morning feeling as if my knee was all better. it's the second time that i've spoken here and my wife and i spoke to get the last time because we had written a book together and this 1i wrote all by myself alone after two co-authored books was a new and novel experience. with that am i and -- in mind this morning we have asked which of the various ways, and i named them i should use to start to talk with one of the most telling a story ought. it for the richest american who's ever lived, his fortune in contemporary moderate dollars, a conservative estimate was $190 million. now this takes poor bill gates and warren buffett who have 30 or 40 or $50 million p

friend bebe. he knows, benjamin netanyahu just won re-election like the president has. the netanyahu is likely to be in the job for a while. he is fated to have to deal with him. so it makes sense to have this kind of at least, get the relationship back into at least a, some kind of, lack of hostility at a minimum. jon: it was written in one of the papers that the president offered to israel or israelis the kind of warm embrace that they are accustomed to getting from american presidents but they hadn't gotten from this president up till now. >> no, they haven't. there is no question about that. in fact the first term was full of testy exchanges and i think that the president thought, okay, i can twist israel's arm and make them do this. it turns out he really can't. he needs their trust. now he also went to ramallah and met with the palestinian authority leader where they were a lot warier about u.s. commitments and you think he discovered that, there is still a long, way, jon, for there to go between if we get peace between the palestinians and israelis. it is an interesting questi
to about pressure and there's also mayoral elections. the -- this is -- mayor won the election. it is not like there was month democratic input of this. it was the -- by the mayor's bank account. >> i think -- this proposal is a shell game. what the inspent tore general because -- the city council has the ability to do the oversight of the police department which my colleagues, bill and john, have never taken the opportunity to subpoena. they have subpoena power. >> we don't have subpoena power now. that's not right. city council did. we didn't happen to be the speaker of the city council. >> you don't have to be the speaker. you guys never requested. you never were on record as say you wanted the oversight over the police department. other agencies use it. this is political theater. that's what this is. they are punt the ball to an unelected official. it is not democratic. >> apoint of order by the mayor. >> not democratic and will not proceed teb civil liberties. >> openness and transparency. you know, i would like to see the less itself, exactly what it means. i have a coupl
elections? >> well it is critical. you stop and think about this. of course let's focus here on the senate, not the house. what you have is, you have i think it is 10 democratic senators who are unaring in states that were won by mitt romney. so you have them very cautious about upsetting gun owners and upsetting powerful forces, forces with dollars to spend on campaigns like the nra. gun hobbyists who of course vote and turn out in big numbers behind this issue. this is an issue that will bring out voters to the polls. this is why you had not seen any motion on gun control before newtown. the president despite the concern of people who are gun enthusiasts had not taken any action. feinstein, senator feinstein had not taken any action even though the assault weapons ban had expired just about 10 years earlier. so you see the change. jenna: let's a little bit about that because dianne feinstein says she is disappointed in this. she said if you think congress would listen and clearly listened to the nra. a lot of fingers point to the nra as the reason behind the fact this part of the legisla
your loins again. remember that hibt that we dropped to the national republican lawmakers on election day, the one that responded to their attempts to man handle our uterus by a resounding defeat. it seems the friends at the state house level have missed the memo. while congressional republicans finally managed to make nice tw the ladies by passing the violence against women act, state lawmakers have been outdoing themselves in acts of policy violence against women's reproductive rights and your yut rous should be very, very afraid. this month there has been such unrelenting on slot of state-level attacks against reproductive choice, some of them bray tantly unconstitutional that it inspired mother jones magazine to create their own anti-choice march madness championship brackets. you would think after beginning the month of march with the state passing the most restrictive abortion ban in the country that things couldn't get much worse, but oh how wrong you would be. arkansas kicked things off on march 6 thd when they did something no state has done before. not content with the 20-we
